    I don't know why, but as of recently I've developed an interest in old vinyl :hs: I was just wondering if there's anyone else who still has a collection or is actively collecting :)

    Personally, I don't feel a sense of gain when I buy a CD or when I download a song and burn it, but I feel like I've actually gained something when I buy a record :hs:


    btw, does anyone know where I can pick up a nice record player at a decent price? Preferably one that can also play CD's and such :hs:

    Really if you want to listent o vinyl, just get a turn table.
    They work just as good. Technic 1200 MK-3

    Pawn shops and garage sales are the best places to buy old vinyl, other than that, I don't know of any stores that sell old vinyl. :bigthumb:

    They had a big vinyl sale here a few weeks back, but I completely missed it :wtc:

    I've been checking some of the small music stores around these parts, a few of them still sell old records :cool: Picked up an old Beach Boys album today :)

    Does anyone know of any online sites where I could try and find some rarer or harder to find albums? I know ebay is an option, but are there any others? :hs:

    Depends on what you're after. Lot's of more, I'll call it, punkish labels still sell, and in some cases press, vinyl.

    And every city or town in the US has a hippie record store in it that sells incense, old records (mostly used, but not all), a few new records, and some posters, old trinkets and whatnots. In Orlando, that would be Rock N' Roll Heaven, in Pittsburgh it's Heads Together, but I don't know about where you live. Other than that, garage sales and their online equivalent (ebay) are the best ways to obtain these things. If you're into Jazz or some Cat Stevens type bullshit you can probably find some stuff at the local Salvation Army.

    Also, Flea Markets are excellent. Virtually all the "Music" vendorss specialize in brass knuckles, waterbeds, and old records. The selection is suprisingly good, you just have to look.

    I just discovered this place that has a ton of great old records, I decided to start collecting the classic ones. I just got Tommy by the Who and Sticky Fingers by the Rolling Stones with the original working zipper on the front cover

    Its incredibly depressing that kids these days don't care about vinyl.

    You just need to find the artsy kids :hs:

    You'd be surprised how many kids have record players in the creative arts dorm here at KU :coold:
